“This should be a cracker in the fierce battle for 8th place”
“Never do well at Bramall Lane bar the Cap One cup win a few years back, somehow blew an FA Cup tie when leading in injury time, ten men defeat a couple of seasons ago when Jones was off after fifteen minutes, dire game neither team did anything in and lost to a penalty last season.
That said we outplayed Sheff United at home and they seem in poor form compared to ours, fancy us for a point, which does neither teams play off hopes much good and simply edges us closer to early safety.”
“How terrible it must be for thise guys to be 9th in league one.”
“To be fair being 18th in League Two (your first spell down there for 25 years after having the Championship/Old Div 1 play offs within your grasp 11 years before!) facing financial ruin but not because you’ve overspent on the club and having Danny Glover and Kyle Perry as your strike-force as you get dicked at home to the likes of Accrington Stanley, Macclesfield and Barnet and it isn’t so bad being where they are!
That said I am surprised to see United not really doing that well this season considering the players they’ve got and it is a travesty that its been 5 or 6 seasons now down here? Sooner or later they’ll be back where you should be even if not this season (but its not beyond them yet as it isn’t us hence the importance of the game)”
“It would be a great double over the Blades and make it their 7th home league defeat of the season.”
“They’ve been poor lately and playing negatively according to the fans so a chance to win, must win for any play off hopes. Never get much there and had little luck there too bar the league cup win when two divisions apart.”
“I fancy us for a win at Bramall Lane, don’t think we’re good enough for the playoffs though.
We always turn up and play well against the blunts even if we don’t always get the result.”
“Can’t see anything but a defeat , always go there and play the name and reputation not the current team who are average”
“We can win this but the strikers need to be more mobile and make that extra yard in the box and get first to the ball .
It’s no good putting the ball in the box if the strikers ain’t going get in there”
“Our strikers will not, cannot win high balls against big defenders. We also need goals from midfield and defenders. A lot of the time, particularly from corners we are sending in wrong foot crosses which give every advantage to the defenders and the keeper. This is simple physics.”
“Anything from this game would be a bonus. Unfortunately I can’t see us getting anything just hope we don’t conceed to many. At the moment we cant seem to beg a goal, we could do with somebody finding there shooting boots”
“Well Bury who conceded 12 games in their previous 3 games managed to keep a clean sheet & win 1-0 last night, & all of their fans talk as if they are dire, I just want to see us at least give this a good go, not give it away early on & have to sit there bored for the rest of the afternoon.
Be nice to see us challenge such a ‘big’ club too, a lot of their fans think they have the right to be in the Championship at least & are wasted on this league.”
“Best away day of the season in my mind. Get yourselves there they are seriously struggling at the moment!”
“Bit worried by the referee for this one. Ben Toner. Young and shows plenty of cards (72 yellows in 20 matches) so expect Duffy to be banned after this. Reffed Gillingham v Southend earlier this season and Justin Edinburgh said the game was too big for him! Got a nasty feeling that the home crowd might get to him but TBH do we ever get any decisions at Bramall Lane anyway?”
